I'm with stupid
Like the Bushes, the Beyersteins have an idiolect. One of our favorite proprietary terms is "fardo", which means "vicarious embarrassment for someone who is too stupid or too insensitive to feel embarrassed for themselves." The agony of watching Jenna and Barbara Bush introducing their father at the RNC can only be described as fardo in stereo. Linking Barbara Bush Sr. and Sex in the City is never, ever a good idea. Not even in jest. I hope everyone in America winced at that line about giving foreign policy advice to "Condi." When a a twin lapsed into a pseudo-black patois, I just about crawled under the coffee table.
Amy Sullivan ably aggregates opinion at Washington Monthly:
Even Conservatives Hated Them....The verdict from the Fox News crew on Jenna, Barbara, and Laura is not good.
Bill Kristol: "The last half hour did not help, as far as I can tell, Bush's campaign for reelection."
Mort Kondracke: "Those two girls were ditzes. I'm surprised they were allowed on the program."
Fred Barnes: "I think she [Laura] had no place up there or the daughters either....Their mother said they'll be pursuing their own careers. I would advise them to look in some field other than comedy."
